Drink: Pre-run smoothie recipes


If I'm going out for an early run, I sometimes find that my usual breakfast doesn't sit well when I'm running so a smoothie can be a better pre-run option. These are some of my favourite recipes for an early morning breakfast smoothie.


For all of these recipes, you can keep a stock of fruit in the freezer and put it all in a blender together. All recipes serve 1 as a breakfast or 2 as a snack.


The Green One

1 cup Non-dairy milk

1.5 cups fresh spinach (or .75 cup of frozen spinach)

1 frozen banana

1 tbsp cashew nut butter

1 tsp honey


The Tropical One

1 cup coconut water

1 cup kale

1 cup frozen pineapple

2 tbsp lime juice (fresh or bottled)

2 tbsp chia seeds


The Vanilla Milkshake One

1 cup oat milk

1 frozen banana

3 tbsp oats

0.5 cup yogurt

1 scoop vanilla protein powder


The PB&J One

2 tbsp smooth peanut butter

1 frozen banana

1 cup frozen raspberries

0.5 cup full fat greek yogurt

1 cup almond milk


The Bakewell Tart One

1 cup frozen cherries
